Ryan has six straight 300+ games, dating back to last season. He faces a bad Cardinals defense in what could be a shootout, much like he was involved in last week. This is a get-right game for the Falcons as a whole, aside from Ryan, who has quietly been great. Look for Ryan to put up a big game and get Julio Jones involved again, as they search for a win in the desert.Two bad games in a row for Zeke, but last game his poor performance came from workload, not efficiency. Look for him and the Cowboys to come out angry against a bad Jets defense, finding success early and often.

Arizona is 29th against fantasy quarterbacks, I am not sure if the Falcons will win on the road, but Ryan should be a solid QB1 this week.The Jets are 16th against fantasy running backs, but Elliott should be able to bounce back from a bad game last week.
Mike Tagliere

It's like we hit the rewind button and we're back in the 2018 season with Ryan and the Falcons defense. Despite Jared Goff having a 68-attempt game, Ryan is tied with him for the league-lead with 222 pass attempts through five games. It puts him on pace for 710 pass attempts, which would obviously be more than the 608 attempts he threw in 2018. The good news? He's completing 70.3 percent of passes. The bad news? He's thrown 11 touchdowns with seven interceptions. But any time you can get a quarterback who's averaging 44-plus pass attempts, you have to love it. The Cardinals opponents are also averaging 66.4 plays per game, which ranks as the eighth-most in football. They're the only defense left who's yet to intercept a pass. They've also allowed 12 passing touchdowns that have come at a 6.90 percent clip. The craziest part about the Cardinals? There's just one quarterback who's finished with less than 19 fantasy points against them, and it was the No. 1 quarterback in football, Russell Wilson, as he threw just one touchdown. The best part about Ryan is that his defense is going to allow points, which makes him somewhat gamescript-proof, as they're never comfortable with a lead. The Falcons have a 25-point implied team total, and knowing how much their run-game has struggled, that indicates they're expecting three passing scores out of Ryan. He's an elite QB1 play this week and for the foreseeable future. He's safe to use in cash games, too.
